Take home message
Perfectionism can be difficult to change because there are rewards to it, and it can be maintained by ways of thinking, feeling and behaving.
Still, decreasing unhelpful perfection also improves other problem areas in one’s life, such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety and disordered eating.
Drawing your own perfectionism cycle is the first step in knowing what changes need to be made. Remember there is no “right” or “wrong” answer to your perfectionism cycle. All that matters is that it makes sense to you!
Next session, we will look at ways to prepare you for change and to overcome perfectionism.
